Allaine

Longtime fanfic author Allaine discusses "femslash", or sexual relationships between two women, in fan fiction, original fiction, websides, and films today. Initial episodes gave listeners the opportunity to discuss favorite pairings from individual fandoms Allaine wrote in for over nine years, while later episodes went on to feature other fandoms, interviews with other fanfic authors, discussion of facets of femslash in general, and the occasional Hollywood screenwriter.

Now that F4F has not only marked its fourth anniversary of being on the air, but also entered its final month of broadcasting, we’ll be spending all of June celebrating that which made this program great.  Don’t worry, no self-congratulation here, of course I’m talking about the guests.  For each show in June, we’ll have on four (and occasionally five) guests who made at least one prior appearance to talk about what they’ve been up to since then.  Maybe they’ve continued to write...

As F4F Radio winds to a close next month, we take time in May to wrap up an ongoing program tradition where we discuss “Xena: Warrior Princess” every six months.  This tradition started with an interview of three prominent Xena fanfic and “uberfic” authors in January 2010, followed by three more in June.  Due to the fandom’s enduring and massive popularity, this eventually metamorphosed into annual May and November segments where author interviews gave way to panel discussions with...

Funny how things come full circle.  It was in October 2009, not even six months after F4F Radio went on the air for the first time, that we interviewed Nancylee Myatt, Liz Vassey and Christina Cox about, among other things, the enduring popularity of the leaked pilot “Nikki & Nora”.  (Okay, yes, they answered questions via email because they couldn't be there live, and their answers were then read out loud over the airwaves by hardcore N&N fans, but every word said was still...

It’s a rare day when a movie comes to F4F Radio’s attention.  Of course there was “The Devil Wears Prada”, which we discussed in 2009.  But generally speaking, a hit Hollywood movie – a couple hours and it’s done - can’t generate the same level of enthusiasm and the same number of devotees as a hit TV series – creating hours and hours of new material over a period of several years.  Tonight, however, we’ll be visiting the world of the movie “Pitch Perfect”, which has...

F4F Radio kicks off March with the latest installment in a series of bimonthly appearances by producer/writer/director Christin Mell to talk about the latest production to premiere on Tellofilms.com, the site she co-founded. And the site which soon will be merging with OneMoreLesbian, creating a single entity even better positioned to provide high-quality online entertainment designed to appeal to lesbian audiences. This month Tellofilms will debut "Kiss Her I'm Famous", the new...

For tonight’s show F4F does something it hasn’t done in a while and focuses not on the TV show or the fandom or the webseries or even the author within the fandom, but solely on the author. While some great past guests have spent years writing within a single universe – Chris Dee being a perfect example – others have created a body of work where the number of stories they’ve written is matched only by the number of fandoms they’ve sampled. From Harper to Fembuck to Della Street,...

In February F4F returns to its earliest roots and does something that hasn’t been done since last fall – the interviewing of fan fiction authors. Tonight we revisit the world of Emma Swan and Regina Mills, aka “Swan Queen”, from the ABC drama “Once Upon a Time”. Even though the series hasn’t even finished its second season, we’ve already talked about the enormously popular pairing of heroine and villainess 3 times. However, on each of those previous occasions we discussed Swan...

After a brief hiatus at the end of 2012, Christin Mell and tellofilms.com returns for another installment in a bimonthly series.  This time we'll be focusing on the new webseries "Gay Street Therapy", which officially launched just one week ago.  "Gay Street Therapy" is a completely unscripted comedy series starring Brandy Howard and Julie Goldman as two women providing hilarious, sometimes good sometimes not so great advice to lesbians about life and love. They're not Ann...

F4F Radio rings in the new year with a discussion of lesbian subtext in modern television - a topic I’ve wanted to discuss since before the start of 2012!  Before the late 1990s, when fandoms began popping up with canon lesbian pairings on shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Xena: Warrior Princess”, “Once and Again” and “Babylon 5”, gay characters typically lacked a screen presence beyond the “very special episode”.  Today, more network and cable programs seem to be...

This month, as F4F Radio frequently does in May and November, we dive back into the world of Xena: Warrior Princess because, well, this is a fandom where you never run out of things to discuss. Otherwise there wouldn’t still be three gazillion Xena/Gabrielle shippers out there. Tonight, however, we’ll shift focus a little bit away from our favorite heroines and spend time with the most prominent VILLAINS from the television series – Ares the god of war, Callisto the insane...

Having explored lesbian storylines in multiple forms of both writing (novels, fan fiction) and filmmaking (movies, webseries), for the first time F4F Radio looks at another fusion of the written word and the visual arts - the webcomic. Comic strips have been a part of newspapers for decades, but the Internet gave creative minds with a knack for both writing and graphic design to reach an audience without muscling onto the funny pages. This was especially important for people interested in...

Tonight F4F Radio will be continuing one of two discussion panels from the month of June. Regular audience members know that while we normally interview authors and filmmakers about their work, we do also occasionally have panels where the authors visit to discuss the fandom itself, not their own work. Past examples have included All My Children, Babylon 5, and Harry Potter. This time we'll be exploring the world of the hit ABC series "Once Upon a Time", which just...

F4F Radio wraps up a busy September with its third show in two weeks, as writer/director/producer Christin Mell returns for another installment in her series of bimonthly appearances to discuss Tellofilms.com.  This time we'll be revisiting "The Throwaways".  When we first talked about this serious look at the difficult decisions faced by teenagers fleeing their homophobic parents with Christin and star Bridget McManus in the spring, the project wasn't even finished casting.  Less...
